Leucadendron 'Safari Goldstrike' (Yellow Conebush) - This is a vigorous, compact grower to 6 feet tall. The "flowers" are composed of bright clean yellow bracts that surround the central female cone on vigorous long stems during winter and spring. Likened to a yellow version of the popular 'Safari Sunset' although a smaller grower. Has medium frost tolerance - hardy to 20-25 F. This is an excellent candidate for cut flower and foliage harvesting. Prune well after flowering to ensure a sturdy plant. This plant is from Kingflora Nurseries in New Zealand were it has been protected under Plant Breeders Rights since 1997. It is a great plant with 'Safari Sunset' and is one the most popular of the yellow flowering cut flower varieties.  This description is based on research and observations of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in our nursery garden and in other gardens that we visit. We also incorporate comments received and appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have any additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Leucadendron 'Safari Goldstrike'.
